    I have a question guys,,,,I wanted to know if there is anyway I could improve the web browser.I tried to watch a movie trailer on yahoo movies but it told me that my web browser will not run the trailer.

    So I was wondering if there is an application that i could download to improve this situation and be able to watch movie trailers on yahoo.com

    thanks every one and sorry if I sound like a noob lol

    thanks for the reply,,,,,

    When i try to play a trailer on yahoo.com with the safari browser it tells me
    "we are unable to proceed. your computer is currently unable to playthe selected clip,,,clicl here for solution"

    then i click for solution

    it says:"we have checked your internet browser.it does not meet our minimum requirements"
    ten it also recommends to download macromedia flash player V8

    or install a free plug in media player and so on.

    can you watch movie trailers on yahoo with your i touch?

    Ah, the iPod/iPhone's Safari doesn't have flash support (and it doesn't look like it's coming).

    I suggest trying to find another website?

    Well it does but it works with the iPod because the movies are coded using a new codec that normal flash media isn't in.

    ok so sites like videohampster and itransmorgiphy (sp?) don't work on ipod touch 2G?
    If your don't understand what im talking about then this is what im referring to, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDktKkXQ80Q&feature=related. anyways if anyone with a ipod touch 2G can tell me if this still works that would be much appreciated. It means the difference between getting 1G or 2G. Thanks
